SCOE has collaborated with the California Math Project: North Coast since it was established in 2001. In the early years, SCOE and the Math Project shared staff and partnered on a number of innovative grant projects. Collaboration continues today with Math Project institutes hosted at SCOE to serve Sonoma County teachers and administrators. Local educators have expanded and strengthened mathematics instruction for students as a result of these collaborations.
California Math Project: North Coast | Link
The California Math Project: North Coast (formerly the North Bay Math Project) is one of 19 California Mathematics Project regional sites. Led by Sonoma State University mathematics faculty and K-12 mathematics educators, the California Math Project: North Coast (CMP:NC) provides professional learning opportunities in mathematics for K-12 teachers in Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, Mendocino, and Sonoma counties. The Project’s mission is to deepen teachers’ understanding of mathematics and strengthen their ability to communicate mathematical concepts.
Working with schools, districts, county offices of education, and regional projects, CMP:NC has become an integral part of mathematics education in North Coast public schools. The Project has hosted numerous professional learning opportunities and secured grants from the California Mathematics and Science Partnership and CPEC. Lesson Study has been used as the vehicle for transferring the information learned by teachers into the classroom. The Project has also taken advantage of a variety of technologies to enhance, record, and distribute its work.
